Some Latinitas representatives came to my high school a while back, and talked to all the girls about body image. The message was important to me, so the organization stood out. I looked at the website out of curiosity, and I decided it was a good organization that I would like to contribute to.

The Best Farms

Posted on August 8, 2017 at 8:05am 0 Comments

I would like to highlight two special places- Vital Farms and Organic Pastures. These farms commercially sell eggs and dairy products, but both are Certified Humane, and offer the best care to their animals that I have seen in these industries.

  Imagine a meterstick. Both ends say “extreme” and the middle says “balanced.” There is no good or bad on this spectrum, just deviations from balance. This tool can be used to measure anything, but the mean, or balance, might be perceived differently by different people, like bad sampling leading to a faulty confidence interval.

   Just recently, an amazing new policy was proposed- Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices. This policy would ensure that companies using the USDA Organic label refer to “humane “ treatment of animals. Yes, more work needs to be done before the standards require 100% humane treatment, but it is far better than what is required now.

Some of the new standards include:
